Update Zoom Client

It is very important to keep your Zoom client up to date. Zoom releases bug fixes and feature updates several times a month. If you are using an older version of Zoom you may not have access to the newest features and updates.

Minimum Version Requirement for Campus Meetings

For security purposes, a minimum version of the Zoom client is required for use in campus Zoom meetings. Campus Zoom admins strive to keep the minimum version to be two versions behind the most current release (x.x.x-2). What does this mean? If your Zoom client version falls below the minimum requirement, you may be prompted to update the client prior to joining or hosting a campus Zoom meeting. The minimum version is adjusted every second Thursday of the month during the Zoom maintenance window (10:00 PM) and is set to two versions behind the most current version.
